Robert Shaw leads the Robert Shaw Festival Singers in these powerful works of Francis Poulenc. Poulenc experienced a spiritual crisis which led to the composition of his powerful Mass in G major, which is dedicated to the memory of his father. Paired with this work are his Four Motets for Christmas, Four Motets for a Time of Penitence, and Four Short Prayers of Saint Frances.
